Senior Software Engineer – Growth Team, Full Stack Web
You will be part of a small, expert team relentlessly focused on moving the needle on customer acquisition and revenue. You’ll leverage our well-loved product and minimal competition, and help position us to capitalize on the crazy good new products we have coming down the line. Every sprint you’ll identify, log, and prioritize ideas, build out and test top ideas, and pour over test results to validate hypotheses, raise new questions, and evolve our mental model of customer behavior. See this video for how this works.
Success in this role is crucial to the success of the company, because if we can dramatically grow sales we can greatly accelerate hiring and additional financings, and ship the radical new test equipment platform that electrical engineers, systems engineers, researchers, educators and students desperately want.
We are currently hiring for a Senior Software Developer, but the following roles will most likely be needed over time:
- Senior Software Engineer – Growth Team, Full Stack Web
- Senior Software Engineer – Growth Team, Analytics
- Senior Marketing Manager – Growth Team, Lead
- Senior Designer – Growth Team, UI/UX, App & Web

Please get in touch if you're passionate about what we're doing and would be outstanding for one or more of the above roles.

Your Qualifications, in general:
- You have a strong track record and exceptional ability in rapidly creating full stack web applications.
- You’ve thrived in high cadence environments, where you shipped code to users multiple times per month on an ongoing basis.
